[Sold] Yamaha EX5 (Expanded) For Sale (UK)

Unread post by jima » Fri Jun 01, 2018 2:50 pm

Offered here first with a week's grace before listing on other auction sites is my backup Yamaha EX5.

In good condition and fully functional, she has just had a full service including a brand new LCD display and some flaky buttons replaced and is in fully functional condition passing all internal diagnostics including the floppy drive. She has been upgraded with 32Mb of RAM and 16Mb of flash RAM as shown in photos and the key-bed is fully functional, all notes working and passing diagnostics. There are no expansion boards fitted. Physically, case condition is quite good showing only some scuffing on the front under the key-bed and a small nick out of the right-hand rear end cheek. Please note that any apparent fading on the photos of the display is from the photo processing (as digital cameras see LCD's differently from human eyes), not the display itself which is perfect.

For those who are not familiar with this modern classic of a synth, please find some more information on the EX5Tech UK site which you can find here http://www.ex5tech.co.uk/assets/files/o ... aha_ex.pdf along with a host of other documents, utilities, FAQ's and patches.

I am asking £449 plus £35 insured carriage for her, collection (always best) if preferred from Stourbridge, West Midlands. I am more than happy to entertain close offers from YamahaMusicians members. Please PM here if interested.

Looks a great example for somebody. I trust you are keeping your main one? :)

Absolutely - she's not going anywhere and retains prime position in the A-Frame :)

As I am keen to free up space on the rack I'm happy to accept £449 for the EX5. Don't miss out on this very excellent synth!

I'm in a bit of a quandary about that. At the moment it's a toss-up between Arturia MatrixBrute, Roland JD-Xa, Roland System-8, Novation Ultranova or bite the bullet and go straight for Kronos 2. It's a First World problem :)

Gosh tough choices there Jim ;) I would probably go with the KRONOS 2 simply because it covers so much ground. The others are all good for what they are of course but KRONOS delivers the best bang per buck without doubt.

I'd go and audition a Kronos to see what you think of it. But it depends on what you want of course. If you want a modern day EX5 that will keep you busy for a very long time then it would be the Kronos for me. I have had mine for four years now, and still barely scratched the surface of what it can do.

A MatrixBrute or Ultra Nova would be good for analogism. Can't really comment on the Rolands other than I have the System 8 in Cloud form, so a much cheaper way of owning it (and everything else in the Cloud), but I can't say it is one that wows me.
